Went to Blue Fin last night for my birthday after reading the review in Time Out New York. We were not disappointed. The service was thorough and well paced. WE WERE DEFINITELY NOT RUSHED.In all, our 4 course meal with two bottles of wine were spaced out over a leisurely 3 hours. I had the grouper which was DIVINE. It came with a butternut squash risotto that was absolutely perfect. The filet looked delish and the salmon with crayfish chowder was perfectly seasoned. It was fairly loud but we were told that some foreign dignitary was having a party upstairs. Not that we minded, our waiter swiped some of the chocolates and desserts they were serving upstairs and gave us a wide arrays of sweets to try in addition to the desserts we had already ordered. YUMMY

I frequent the Fin since I work right across the street. This place is among my local faves. The food has never, ever disappointed, and I'm most impressed with their wine selection (rare it is that I can go out and enjoy a great Riesling w/ my fish...they've got a few here). Their sushi is great, their fish dishes are "slammin'" as my co-workers say. The decor is beautiful, though not so intimate. It's a great place for a client dinner meeting or a family dinner, or even a small party. I'd not recommend it for a date, since the place is large and not very cozy (unless it's a "fly by" drinks...great to sit down near the upstairs bar). Overall, love it. I'm a true fan of the Fin.

Went for restaurant week and was delighted with the food. All 3 courses were delicious. We did feel a bit rushed during the meal, and it was obvious that our waitress was a bit overwhelmed. She asked us about dessert before we were served the main dish, confused us with a different table at least 3 times and was overall a little out of it, but the place was packed, so it was understandable. The restaurant itself doesn't seem to be anything special, but my guess is it might be fun to people watch from the window at the bar looking out onto Times Square. Would go back for the food, that's about it though.

I went with my mom pre-theatre on a Saturday and got right in. We were suprised to find that we got a complementary cocktail with brunch, which was delicious. I didn't find it too pricey at all for a New York restaurant. Would have given service a higher mark but we didn't get our drinks until after the meal had been served and we had asked two differet people. Overall the staff was nice and we had a great time.

While on a Theater week in NYC, we were introduced to this oasis in a sea of hustle and bussel! I can not say you get out of the situation as we found the restaurant very noisy, but the superb service made the sounds desolve. Food is quite good. I had the "pink" grouper with lobster rissoto and the dish was excellent. Fish was moist and the sauce a compliment. I could have had a bowl of the bisque like sauce! Desserts were great.Our waitress was very helpful and attentive without being overbearing. Just do not go here with a headache or the noise will send you over the top.

They have greatest brunches. Rich fruit juices and smoothies. Blue fin is great place for weekend brunches. Great atmosphere at broadway and waffles and omlets are both great. Ok crossaints also. However, if you order whatever you want it can get pricy. Me and my boyfriend paid $67 with tip for brunch.

...Blue from the sticker shock that is, when I picked up the check. The food was good. The service was good. The atmosphere was OK (better at the bar). The place is completely over-priced.
